Ruined by glue
on December 19, 2013
The chocolate itself is nice, but a large part of our motivation for buying this gift basket instead of just buying the chocolate itself was that we were hoping to use the faux-leather basket for other things. (Granted, it's not a particularly fancy basket, but it could serve as a decent holder for knick-knacks or remote controls.)
Presumably to keep the individual chocolate boxes from moving around during shipping (despite the fact that the whole thing was tightly wrapped in plastic), there were great gobs of glue holding it all together. Removing the chocolate ripped the false leather interior from the basket. Even separating the chocolate boxes from one another was a chore. (We actually resorted to using scissors to cut the glue between boxes, in order to avoid ripping the boxes themselves.)
In my opinion, it would have been far better to forego the glue and just rely on the outer plastic to keep things in place.
